All of you too young to know what Mayberry is you’ll need to visit Google. I took on the challenge and worked on the handmade candy cane line. It was a lot of fun and I can highly recommend making a stop during the holidays to watch the process in person.

No wonder over 150,000 attendees were here in downtown Ontario on historic Euclid Avenue.
